Fresh Pineapple was on sale last week and I bought a ton of it. I was just freezing some and thought I would share a quick review of this product and instructions on how to freeze Pineapple. A bag of frozen Pineapple that is equal to about 1 pineapple is $3.50 to $5 in the store. So when it's on sale, grab it and a freeze your own.
This All Ware Pineapple Slicer is currently up for grabs for only $4.47 via Ebay. Shipping is FREE. This handy slicer is one of the few kitchen gadgets I have on hand. It has nearly a five star rating and usually moves quickly. This is exactly the one I have in the video below.

How to Freeze Pineapple:
#1 – Place wax paper or parchment paper on a cookie sheet. Either one will do. Make sure the sheet is large enough to hold all of the pineapple chunks. Three Pineapples will easily fit on 2 cookie sheets.
#2 – Put the pieces of pineapple on the wax or parchment paper. Make sure they aren't touching or they will freeze together.
#3 – Place the cookie sheet in the freezer for at LEAST 2 hours. I prefer to leave them overnight so they get nice and frozen. They should be frozen solid before transferring to a bag.
#4 – Don't toss the core. You can cube it and then freeze it and use later instead of ice cubes. It blends well in Smoothies. Or, blend it with tomatoes and use as a soup base. Visit Jodies Kitchen for some ideas on cooking with pineapple cores.
#4 – Put the pieces in a freezer bag or any airtight container. Frozen pineapple can last in your fridge for up to six months
